our workshop: the market stall

2007 One Mango Tree begins in a dark, cramped market stall

we put up our first sign above the stall

For the first year and a half of One Mango Tree's existence, this market stall was our home. It's where I met Lucy, and where she still has her small business "Mama Lucy's Friendship Store." What was once a bare stall is now packed to the brim with kitenge fabrics and sewing machines. It's still the most popular place in the market.
